2013 Systems of Controls to prevent financial crime
With the bringing into effect of the Crimes Act 2011 a number of new and revised financial crimes were introduced into the statute books. This letter aims to provide regulated firms with guidance on our expectations of the systems of control that we expect to see in regulated firms in this respect.

Trust & Company Management - Forms and Returns

Body Corporate Questionnaire
Royal Gibraltar Police Vetting Application Form


Please note that once an 'Individual Questionnaire' or 'Notifiable Document' has been received from an applicant/firm, the GFSC will complete and submit a Royal Gibraltar Police Vetting Application Form in accordance with Section 30C of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2015. This vetting process is conducted internally by the GFSC and bears no cost to the applicant/firm.

Any applicant that has not been ordinarily resident in Gibraltar for the last ten years should provide the GFSC with a report or their criminal record from the relevant authority in the jurisdiction(s) where the applicant has spent a considerable amount of time.

If this report cannot be provided in English, it should  be accompanied by a translation from a certified translator. 

For any further queries, please contact and a member of staff will be happy to assist.
